|Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch|
Since coffee and its availabilities has been discovered, the whole world have been applying their deepest appreciation - but the different applications for coffee is slowly being stretched and this product from a Norwegian beer producer, is no exception. The Norwegian producer is called Mikkeller and named after the founder Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, who have come up with the idea of using the "excess" coffee beans, which has traveled through the digestive system of the Weasels. The product is named Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, and includes a alcohol level of 10,9%, which is quite high for a special brew and is also quite expensive 115 DKK per bottle ($20).
What makes this particular beer special and interesting for the viewers off Coffee Channel is that its partly produced on coffee beans, but not any types of coffee beans. This beans are picked by Weasels in the nature, who only pick the finest and most mature coffee beans among the variety of berries they consume. You might think how can this possibly affect this brews taste - but the Weasels excretes the berries a day or so later, where workers are partially gathering the digested coffee beans from the droppings.
Hereby starts the preparation of the beans, where they are thoroughly washed, sun dried and lightly roasted - this makes the beans ready for producing some of the worlds most expensive coffees and also to brew this particular Mikkeller stout. So in basic you are consuming the remnants of partially digested coffee beans while drinking the Beer Geek Brunch.

The general pour of the beer appears with a super dark brown color and a dense, thin brown top layer of foam. The taste experience kicks off with a generous blast of bitter dark chocolate and than seamlessly transitions into a powerful roasted coffee flavor - at the same time, semi sweet malts and light licorice tones in hidden in the aftertaste.
